Citroën C3 Aircross: Small SUV of the Year 2018


Another win for the Citroën C3 Aircross this week as it was awarded the 2018 Auto Express Small SUV of the Year! New C3 Aircross was praised by the Auto Express jury for its unique personality, spaciousness and affordable pricing. Previous wins for this successful new Citroën model include the ‘Best Small Crossover’ prize in this year’s UK Car of the Year Awards.


Auto Express Editor-in-chief, Steve Fowler, commented “Citroën didn’t shy away from doing something different with the launch of its latest small SUV. The C3 Aircross looks unlike anything else on sale in this segment. Its bold styling and vibrant interior mean it’s a real head-turner. Those efficient and punchy three-cylinder PureTech petrol units mean the Aircross is cheap to run as well as to buy, but there are even some 1.6-litre diesels for high-mileage drivers. The most efficient version claims 70.6mpg economy and CO2 emissions of 104g/km.”


Citroën UK’s Marketing Director, Souad Wrixen, said; “We’re delighted to be recognised once again by Auto Express in these highly esteemed awards. It’s particularly exciting to see New C3 Aircross honoured with the Small SUV title in such a fiercely contested marketplace.


New C3 Aircross has been enormously well received since its launch and this trophy is a further endorsement of Citroën’s positioning and product strategy. As a brand that prides itself on comfort, it’s no surprise the judges’ comments set both models apart for their spaciousness and usability.”
